Steve Elworthy, the ECB’s Head of Global Events, said: ‘The format and the venues in 2013 proved extremely popular and the fans turned out in record numbers for the event.
‘All three venues will be keen to repeat their success from the last tournament and I am sure they will have learnt from the experience which will lead to the ICC Champions Trophy in 2017 being even more memorable.’
‘This is a golden time for spectators to watch cricket in our country and we know from the experiences of the ICC Champions Trophy in 2013 that the tournament appeals to fans from all ethnic backgrounds and they are most welcome in our grounds.’
In 2013 Edgbaston held the 50-over final between India, the eventual winners, and hosts England while in 2017 it is planned that The Oval will host its second ICC Champions Trophy final – the other being in 2004 when West Indies beat England.
All venues are subject to ICC approval.
